Superintendent shaves head after students raise money for cancer research

By NEWSChannel 2 Staff

FRANKFORT, N.Y. (WKTV) - A local school is doing its part in the fight against cancer, pinching pennies that paid off in a big show from their Superintendent.

Frankfort-Schuyler Superintendent Robert Reina challenged students and staff to raise more than $1,600 for Pennies for Patients toward cancer reasearch and in exchange, he said he would shave his head.

The school raised more than that goal and on Wednesday, Superintendent Reina made good on his promise.

"We actually honored Mr. Reina and Mrs. Susan DiPasquale today, on their birthday," said Fourth Grade Teacher Heather Scialdo. "So we only had two weeks to collect the pennies. In two weeks, we raised through many donations and counting. We still have some coming in today."
